I bought an Xmas gift - some perfume discounted at 30% which I'm pleased about.... but, it was a little bit of a nightmare buying it, my browser crashed on my phone when I hit the 'Order now' button - so my order was hanging there... phoned Paypal and the company and confirmed that the order did go through, but after about an hour later lol.

I'm surprised SL didn't have a Black Friday deal on premium/land tier. Did any SL merchants put offers on their in-world creations?

I splashed a bit of cash on virtual things. The Madpea feed-a-smile raffles, a merchant membership here, a bunch of planet themed Xmas ornaments at Tannenbaum and an animated baby Krampus that I plan on wearing with a full alpha. Tomorrow I’ll hit the Lolita event and Azul and on Monday any leftover SL cyber-sales. Much cheaper and easier than rl shopping, I can do it in my jammies and there’s no hassle with traffic. 🦋

Generally I just buy movies on Black Friday, because they feel like the only thing actually on sale.

I picked up Deadpool 2, Ready Player One, Jumanji, Legion Season 1, John Wick 2, Jurassic World 2, Game of Thrones S5, Star Wars Solo on that front.

I also bought an Echo Dot and an SD card.

I did go to a couple of stores today during the Ohio State-Michigan game. Columbus is like a ghost town for a few hours.

My only Black Friday sale item, a PS4 slim bundle (xmas gift for myself!), was ordered online about a week before, and the shipping is delayed until Monday.

But it still counts, right?

Likewise. I spent Black Friday binge-watching Star Trek Voyager episodes. There was no way in hell I was going to go out into that craziness!
Maybe it's my area, but Walmart wasn't anywhere near as crazy as it has been previous years.

Granted, I went like 2 hours after the "opening" at 6. There wasn't anymore people than normal and they still had some of the "deals" items the next day when I went to get some regular house supplies stuff. In fact I think it was busier at like 2 Friday than 8 Thursday.

I have my own real world business and have a sale running (started right before Black Friday). I've had more traffic than previous years but people don't seem to be spending as much. I also have a Christmas fair thingy this weekend. Hopefully people there will be in a more spendy mood.

Nothing on Black Friday, but on Thursday morning after work, I got the very last package of stuffing in Walmart. (After I'd overheard a couple looking for the same thing.) I count that as a great deal :p

Got 4 spam emails within an hour from the same online store, in addition to all the other spam. :anger:

3 UDemy classes for a total of 20$, a bunch of really useful boxes to put all my chain mail rings in.... I think that's all.

I got a good deal on an espresso maker for my husband. After I saw a manual one in Italy blow up on a glass top stove :eek: (which is what I currently have), I decided that the one we have should go in the trash and he should use one that can shut off on it's own.

My husband is a bit like Professor Farnsworth in Futurama, good intentions but tends to be distracted easily and it's good to have things around the house that shut themselves off. :geek:

i saw a bluetooth sound bar on sale at amazon discounted to 20 dollars. i've been wanting to get one for my tv for a while now so i bought it. the day of delivery i got an email saying there was a problem and the package was lost and that i should contact them...i spoke with a person via support chat about how i was sad and wanted to get a replacement.. but she couldn't find anymore so instead i got an amazon gift card for 20 dollars... Very next day i got an email from UPS saying your package will be delivered today.... so now i have a sound bar i got for free and a 20 amazon giftcard.. :)

I got the Hp Omen 32" 1440p monitor for $255 after tax. I used a $25 off coupon, picked up a couple more from the store today if you want to cancel and re-order with the code. Let me know...

Also picked up an EVGA 750W G3 PSU for $70, and a Dewalt 20V string trimmer combo w/5Ah battery and string for $152 after tax. Kinda mad I missed out on the i7-7700k + MSI z270 mobo + 2 game combo for $290 after $40MIR... Oh well, I'll keep searching for a good CPU deal. I can get the 7700k alone for $250 right now, but I'll wait for Cyber Monday.
